A complete schedule of the Wild Card Round and Divisional Round for the 2017 NFL Playoffs.
The 2017 NFL regular season has concluded. For 20 teams, today marks the first day of the off season, no games to be played until September, and a lot of changes to be made. But, for twelve lucky teams, a new season begins: the postseason.
Hoping for a shot to bring the Lombardi Trophy home, some for the very first time. After an interesting and exciting Week 17, teams clinched the final playoff spots that were up for grabs and the schedule for the playoffs has been created.
The first two rounds of the 2017 NFL Playoffs goes as followed:

This year's playoffs are shaping up to be the most entertaining playoffs in years. Not one team is a major favorite to win the Super Bowl... it's anybody's race, it's wide open. It futures new teams with new faces, and leaves out ones we are accustomed to seeing, such as Wilson and Rodgers.
Some teams haven't endured a playoff game in 17 years. Nobody could have projected these matchups with these teams before the season. With that being said, all these teams have earned the right to lift the Lombardi Trophy. It all begins in less than a week, concluding on Super Bowl Sunday from frigid Minneapolis on February 4th.
